Located in the Boston area close to Newton, Brighton, Jamaica Plain, Cambridge, and Allston, Brookline Tai Chi has been a center for teaching the Chinese movement arts of Wu Style Tai Chi, Chi Gung or Qigong, Ba Gua and Taoist Breathing or breathwork to promote health and well-being since 1992.
Brookline Tai Chi strives to present these arts in forms consistent with a lineage of Taoist Water Method meditation and energy arts practice that dates back over 2,000 years and has been passed on to our teacher, Bruce Frantzis, from the late Grandmaster Liu Hung Chieh of Beijing.
Brookline Tai Chi mission is to enhance the lives of people in the greater Boston area and beyond, through programs designed to develop better health and relaxation. The organization aims to serve a diverse community whose common interests’ center on becoming more present, conscious, and grounded in one’s body and on the earth.
I first met Bruce in 1992, as a 17 year old, I had all sorts of fantasies about becoming strong and learning to defend myself. Bruce taught me that through hard work and daily practice a world of incredible depth and peace can be found within the art of Ba Gua Zhang that goes far beyond the ability to knock out King Kong.
